    Officer Rose passed away today, November 23, shortly before 6:00 pm, surrounded by his fiancée, family and 130 police officers.

    What was he “investigating” the subject for? No mention of a crime suspected. Sounds like he detained the guy in violation of the 4th amendment. Your cops break the law and act surprised when people defend themselves? lol

      “Sounds like he detained the guy in violation of the 4th amendment”.
      Sounds like your armchair needs rebooting.
      Prove the police officer was in the wrong and broke the law. You can’t. You just want to bash the police for being there. Your hatred of the law enforcers is your own. I will pray for your enlightenment.

    I am sorry to report that as of 9:00pm, the unofficial but verifiable word is that the Wayne State University Police Officer did not survive. He has not been identified at this time.
    Early reports say the officer made contact with the suspect, who was on a bicycle.
    The officer did radio for help, calling “Officer down”.
    A resident of the area reported hearing three gunshots.
    As of this posting, the suspected gunman was still at large, and most probably in possession of the officers missing sidearm.
    Detroit Police, Wayne State University Police, Michigan State Police and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office are assisting in the search for the suspect.
    The officer worked for the Wayne State University Police, who are contracted to respond to calls in the area surrounding the campus, as well as the campus proper.

        As of 11:00pm, WDIV reported that the WSU officer, identified as 29 year old Collin Rose, survived the shooting, is out of surgery at Detroit Receiving Hospital, and listed in critical but stable condition.
        A person of interest has been arrested and identified as Dangelo Davis.
        Police are still searching for the gun used in the shooting, and the ATF has offered a $5000.00 reward for that weapon.
